Section One – Start with Gratitude
After writing the date, of course, the very first section in the One-Page planner is a place to write out a statement of gratitude. Itʼs important to start with this element before diving into the busy of your day. This is an exercise that helps to orient your perspective before you tackle the day.
There are many articles that outline the many attributes of grateful people, but here are just a few of the ones I thought was most profound.
Some benefits of gratitude:
- Value the small things in life.
- Spend more time with loved ones and fiends.
- Seeʼs “good fortune” as Godʼs blessings.
- Are more optimistic during hardships.
- Live happier and healthier lives
- Lives longer
Section Two -Express Your Top Priorities
The second section of your planner is whatʼs going to set you apart from the rest. Itʼs also why the planner is titled Todays P3. In this section of your planner you will write out your top 3 priorities for the day. These three items are items that are non-negotiable tasks that will guarantee you progress in addition to productiveness. You start by identifying these top priorities and then you build the rest of your day around them.
The reason for three priority items is simple actually – focus. One of the biggest hurdles to remaining productive during our days is making everything too important. Subsequently, we focus on too many things at once and the result is that nothing really gets our full potential.
An additional step to solidifying these items as priority is writing out the place and time youʼll be doing these tasks. I would even suggest putting this information in your phone and setting reminders once youʼve written them down.
To stress how important this is, Iʼll say this. If you skip this portion youʼve lost 50% of the power of this planner. So just donʼt skip it.
Section Three – Note Other To-Do’s
This section is where your “other To-Doʼs” will live. While we only highlight three items as top priority, itʼs foolish to think that weʼll only have three things to do that day. This section is where I would include your day-to-day items that you donʼt want to overlook as you move through your day.
Section Four – Identify Priority People
This is something that Iʼm surprised I have found in ANY OTHER PLANNER. A section or place to note your priority people for the day. Priority people are the people connected to helping or ensuring you accomplish your P3 or top three priority for that day. They are your biggest variable simply because you canʼt control other people. So thereʼs no guarantee that theyʼll be, do, say, or go to, what you need them to.
As a result, itʼs important that you see them as your priority people. Recognize when and where you need to be more communicative or slow down to help to bring them along. There may be times when youʼll need to make more time for someone on your Priority People list because not helping them will have a direct impact on your progress.
So, whoʼs on your Priority People list today?
BONUS SECTION – EVALUATE
Andy Stanley puts it this way, “You don’t learn from experience, that’s a myth. You only learn from evaluated experience.” So I say, why not evaluate daily?
So, in this section of your planner I’ve included a bonus section for evaluating at the end of each day. It’s also short and sweet. Answer these two questions at the end of each day and watch yourself began to master the art of maximizing your potential!
If you’ve followed me for a while now you know I believe that growth is a leaders’ fountain of youth. As such, it’s important for us to find a constistent and affordable way to grow regularly. This is by far the most consistent and cheapest (I mean, it’s free!) way to grow consistently. And it really is as simple as evaluating your experience daily at the end of each day.

No one should ever feel like theyʼre living out someone elses to-do list. Having to deal with overwhelm and stress, more consistently and unnecessarily than anyone should ever have to. The only plan we should ever live out that comes from someone else, is the plan that God has for our lives. With that said, the One-Page Daily Planner is a tool that helps you to take back control of you daily life.
Itʼs perfect for busy people who need a simple tool to keep them clear, focused and grounded through the day. Additionally, to help them move towards a bigger goal with navigating their daily life. The One-Page Planner is for the person who wants to make progress towards their goals and not just be productive at work.
I created the One-Page Planner after speaking with a friend who shared how stuck they felt in life. They wanted to make progress towards their goals and not just be productive at work. However, theyʼre tried traditional planners and it just didnʼt work for them. Hope, they shared, was an understatement.
The One-Page Planner is designed with you in mind. Simple, direct, and reflective. Helping to keep your priorities centered and your personal growth in mind daily. And all this – On. One. Page.
